This is an intensive, introductory, 2.5 day course. Through discussion and hands-on learning, you'll acquire skills needed to support evidence-based practice. We use an active, case-based approach in a comfortable, small-group environment. A hallmark of this Institute is the low student-faculty ratio and the individual attention each participant receives.
Medical librarians who want to learn evidence-based medicine concepts in order to comfortably support and teach EBCP at their institutions. Attendance will be limited to 32 participants to maximize individual learning.
After completing this Institute, students will be able to:
- Identify and explain the concept, issues and process of evidence-based clinical practice (EBCP).
- Recognize study designs and understand their strengths and limitations.
- Create well-built, answerable clinical questions.
- Use clinical questions to find the best evidence in the literature about the diagnosis and treatment of disorders.
- Identify and explain the criteria for judging the internal validity of randomized controlled trails (RCTs), systematic reviews, and diagnostic studies.
- Identify roles that librarians can undertake in providing EBCP training and support to health care professionals.
